Weekly General Assembly – Wed, Feb 29, 5 pm

Where: 2nd fl of Remsen Hall, directly above the entrance closest to the Science Bldg

Students, faculty, staff and alumni are all welcome as we work to build a more vibrant, just community. Through direct democracy and consensus, we ensure every voice can be heard as we engage one another on a collaborative, rather than a competitive, basis. At our weekly general assembly, we share our grievances and our ideas for collective action. By creating a way to better our community that actually works, we stand in stark contrast to the unresponsive and undemocratic structures of QC, CUNY and our society at large that create only the illusion of change.
